You and your partner yeYou and your partner yearn for a remodeled kitchen. Problem is, you prefer a sleek modern look while your significant other insists on a more elaborate classical approach. Fortunately, there’s room for compromise in the form of a transitional kitchen, which was recently voted the most popular kitchen design style (chosen by 88%) among surveyed members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
Julie Assenberg, owner of Julie Assenberg Interior Design, LLC in Salt Lake City, explains that “transitional” is a fairly new term in the design world that harmonizes elements of both traditional and contemporary design —offering the best of both worlds.
“It’s popular because it fits well in homes of varying architectural styles and can suit almost any aesthetic,” she says. “Transitional design is also appealing because there are no rules, except to ensure that all the elements you choose play well together.”
